    No E3 for Sony 2020, but many consumer events around the world .

    So, Sony just confirmed no show on this years E3 (likely never again by the sound of things).

    Also implied they will have "hundreds" of events around the globe for PS4 and PS5.

    From Kotaku :

    Kinda sounds like no February meeting.

    Personally I see no reason why the demos shouldn't be available to download onto your console and the trailers viewable from YouTube. Sony could get their message out and more interactive than what E3 affords.

    IIRC Sony was doing big special Playstation events with games and demos to play during the PS1 days.
    Anyone remember?

    Did e3 piss Sony off somehow? Throwing hundreds of events worldwide isn't a practice of the biggest bang for your buck. The cost of an e3 press conference should be dwarfed by hundreds of events that targeted at large crowds.

    The dream is well and truly over. No E3, no PSM, no 13 TF beast, no hype, nada, but hey they have exclusive launch titles...
    You know what Sony, ALL will be forgiven if you present us a 13 TF console.

    Context in terms of number of visitors over the course, but not necessarily by number of user's watching or following:

    ChinaJoy 2019: 365k
    Brazil Games Show 2018: 325k
    Taipei Game Show 2019: 320k
    Paris Games Week 2018: 316k
    Tokyo Game Show 2019: 262k
    G-Star Korea 2018: 235k
    .....
    E3 2019: 66k

    I believe they don’t feel E3 aligns with their needs anymore. As in they don’t want to do an industry show. They want to do an experience show. More customer focus; less industry focus

    Don't worry, I'm sure they'll have Remasters and ReRemasters too.

    But one E3 ticket probably costs 5 times more than the others.

    When they gimp their console's power to such depth all because of the BC, why the hell would they want to spend more on Remasters and the likes? I hope the BC truly bears the fruit of their labor.

    If only they had implemented more TV and SPORTS features instead of wasting their time on all those remasters..

    :(

    And they can do that.

    But from the consumer side, e3 was never about attending the show. It was about the level of press coverage and the number of eyeballs it still garners.

    That being said, Sony doesn’t actually have to attend but if it’s not doing a press conference and releasing a bunch of videos relating to the PS5 during e3, it’s missing out on a ton of exposure..

    They got too comfortable with things this gen thus feeling too complacent about skipping E3 after E3. If they're in a PS3 situation you can bet your mortgage they wouldn't even skip a Sunday market show.

    "PS3 Situation" -- Do you mean before they launched PS3 Japan or before global launch or after the global launch? Like being behind by 1 year? Or talking about something else entirely?

    As in their dire financial situation during the PS3 period, it's ironic tho how the poorer you are the more you try and invest to impress.
